Parents' quick start guide to our monthly book box
Depending on your child’s reading confidence, they may prefer to read some of the books together with you. We strongly believe they will get as much out of listening to you read any story as they will by reading it themselves. The aim of our book club is to get children enjoying and thinking about good books, not testing them on their reading skills.
If you think your child would benefit from switching reading groups (Parakeets or Cockatoos), please just drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll arrange that for you.
To avoid spoilers, save the book club-style questions until you’ve finished the book. All the questions are intended to prompt discussion and there are definitely no right or wrong answers!
The activities in the pack are designed to help your child connect the story with their own experiences and prompt them to reflect on what they’ve read. But why stop there? You could plan additional activities, trips or further reading.
Our instructions caution children to be careful or ask for assistance with activities like cutting or cooking. Please ensure they are fully supervised. Similarly, we include links to our YouTube channel and other carefully selected websites in our packs and urge subscribers to follow their family’s rules around using the internet.
Stay in touch
We hope you and your child love the books and activities. We’d love to hear what you think!
